Omaha - A tough night for the Tar Heels.
Rice jumped on North Carolina with a six-run second inning and
Joe Savery pitched six-plus solid innings for a 14-to-4 route of
the Tar Heels.
The Owls are the lone unbeaten team in Bracket 1.
They'll play Wednesday against the winner of Tuesday's
Louisville-North Carolina elimination game.
One more victory would put the Owls (56-12) in the best-of-three
championship series that starts Saturday.
North Carolina (54-14) used a College World Series-record eight
pitchers against the Owls after freshman starter and former D.H. Conley standout Alex White lasted only one and a third innings.
